Ryan Kirk - 2020 Reserves Coach

After 4 seasons at the club coaching youth and seniors football, Ryan topped off his coaching CV with a Division 4 Senior Premiership as coach of the Pirates!

Aside from 2019 being a tough season for the club, with not all players and supporters embracing the Friday Night concept, Ryan turned up rain, hail or shine and worked to get the premiership against all odds. A great achievement for ‘Kirky’ and we are pleased that he again has put up his hand to steer our Reserve Grade side to hopefully their highest finish in a season.

We wish him all the best for the 2020 season!


Very exciting year ahead for the under 16s in season 2020. Welcome to Lauchlan Simmons and his assistant Lachie Norris. Two very excited senior players who can’t wait to take this group on and prepare them for Senior Football.

Our Head Coach Tom Corless will also be involved and will be keeping a keen eye on the talent coming through. Our aim as a club is to develop our U16’s for those who have the desire to test themselves, while also ensuring that we make it an enjoyable season for everyone to participate in across all levels. This is enormous for the players development as they will also have the opportunity to train and interact with the Senior Group.

All the best guys for a great season 2020!
